jesse wows the girls at the dog park

Hey there little Schnauzer girl. You gots a pretty face. Come here often?

That's not my face you big butthead. Check this out.

Whoa Nellie! You is ug-LEE!

This one's more my type anyway. I prefers a merle girl any day of the week.

Hey! You gots a ball! Give it me NOW!

I'd rather stick needles in my eye.

Golly moses you moves fast for a fat chick!

Ha! Prepare to meet your doom girlie cakes.

Nyah! Nyah! I gots it now!

C'mon, fat dog. Take me down!

Hey! Come back cupcake! Whassup? I too manly for you?

NOTE: Jesse and his 'admirers' quoted two movies from the '80s. Guesses anyone?

OMG, Andrea! That commentary is hilarious! Great photos. :-)

Hey lovely Schnauzer!

And it is funny how those lab types think they are suitable for the Schnauzers but the Schnauzers tend to think differently...

This turned out to be quite prophetic - in the park this morning there was a big lab who definitely thought Teasel was the girl for him... his owner had to come and take him away!

(She is not in season, and the owner of the lab said he is a 12 year old male who was neutered long ago but has recently been getting ideas...)

Is Jesse being a little problematic now that he's an unaltered teenage boy? Yikes. I tried, I failed, I give up, what quotes? what movies? (if any are from the Porky's franchise that's probably why I don't know, missed those gems)

HEY! Thats FLUFFY, not FAT! On behalf of all the merle aussies out there who perhaps (PERHAPS) have a wee bit of winter fluff on them......

I always wonder why there aren't more fights between the dogs at dog parks. Are they genrally well behaved?

Ponita: Fortunately I had literally dozens of photos to choose from so I could cobble together Jesse's little dialogue.

Caroline: In spite of the commentary, Jesse was actually remarkably respectful of the two little Schnauzer girls (you can see the other one -- she was sick and wearing a coat -- on Flickr) and their owner said that the girls loved him and they can be very fussy about who they fraternise with! :) Of course Jesse is not yet neutered but once told to back off he learns his lesson well!

Michelle G: So glad to be of service!

Ellen: I can sadly say that I, too, missed the Porkys movies. They are from Terms of Endearment (imagine Jack deadpanning "I'd rather stick needles in my eye") and The Color Purple (Whoopie Goldberg was the ugLEE girl).

Michelle: :) I used to say the same thing about my Aussie Zappa and his even fluffier cellmate Zoe. Now Zappa was all fluff but Zoe had a few extra lbs of padding to keep her warm in winter, too...

Sandy: Thanks and it was a lot of fun trying to match the pictures to the text in my head. Jesse is surprisingly good with the older girls, playful but quite respectful, in spite of the goombah I made him out to be.

Citizen: Dog socializing is fascinating to observe. It's not so different from being at a cocktail party -- just a hell of a lot less subtle! Sometimes there's a bully in the crowd and the rest of the partygoers -- er -- dogs will steer clear (we were at a party at Christmas like that!), but the kind of territorial behaviour you see in their homes, cars and even on-leash goes by the wayside when they meet in a neutral zone. Fights rarely occur because, like people, most of them just want to get along.

I'd never have guessed the quotes in a million years.If he'd said "Here's lookin' at you, kid" or "Frankly,my dear, I don't give a damn" or even "she chewed with distinction" I'd have won the prize.
I do have a question: does that tennis ball still bounce?

Yep, that schnauzer chick is pretty cute. Jesse has good taste.

And you already knew you had an award from me, so otherwise, have a fine day, my friend.

Great photos and dialogue, but I'm stumped. When do we get the answers??

OMG, I SO needed the laugh this gave me after a stressful workday.

Heh - you can practically hear the dialog when you watch dogs interact, can't you? Jack (mine) is so vocal - he's got a wide range of vocalizations that he uses only in the presence of other dogs (which he hugely prefers to people).

You got me - totally engrossed in dog convo...

I often put words in my dogs mouths - trying to figure out what they'd sound like if human.
